Amazon.co.uk Review
Much praised and much missed after its premature cancellation, Firefly is the first SF TV series to be conceived by Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy and cocreator of Angel. Set five centuries in the future, it is a show where the mysterious personal pasts of the crew of the tramp spaceship Serenity continually surface. In fact, it's a Western in space where the losers in a Civil War are heading out to a barren frontier. Mal Reynolds is a man embittered by the war, yet whose love of his comrades perpetually dents his cynicism--even in the 14 episodes that exist we see him warm to the bubbly young mechanic Kaylee, the preacher Book, the idealistic doctor Simon, even to the often demented River, Simon's sister, the psychic result of malign experiments.
Firefly is also about adult emotional relationships, for example Kaylee's crush on Simon, the happy marriage of Mal's second officer Zoe and the pilot Wash, the disastrous erotic stalemate between Mal and the courtesan Inara. Individual episodes deal with capers going vaguely wrong, or threats narrowly circumvented; character and plot arcs were starting to emerge when the show was cancelled. Fortunately, the spin-off movie Serenity ties up some of the ends; and in the meantime, what there is of Firefly is a show to marvel at, both for its tight writing and ensemble acting, and the idiocy of the executives who cancelled it.

On the DVD: Firefly on DVD is presented in anamorphic 1.78:1 with Dolby Surround Sound. It includes commentaries on six episodes by various writers, directors, designers and cast members as well as featurettes on the conception of the show and the design of the spaceship Serenity, four deleted scenes, a gag reel, and Joss Whedon singing the show's theme tune, more or less. One of the things that emerges from all of this is how committed to the project everyone involved with it was, and is--unusually, you end up caring as much for the cast and crew as for the characters.

I love this show!!

However, I got it for £7 a few month back

Was the same at Zavvi and play last week. Not sure if it still is.

Shiny.

Amazing show! Don't forget to buy Serenity if you want an ending

Best sci-fi show ever. Even beats Space Above & Beyond imo.

Am I the only person in the world who liked this show but thinks that is overrated as the "best show ever"?

I sleep during the pilot episode!!

£9.85 from Zavvi...

Banned

Wish they had the budget or whatever to have completed the series.

I have recently seen the series & I have to say I did enjoy it, some of the episodes are excellent, some v good & some ok! all in all well worth watching (esp from "out of gas" on) I only came across Firefly after watching the excellent Serenity (you dont really need to watch Firefly first!)
So imo a good price for a v good series, but Serenity (the film) is better!?

Call me cheap but id expect blu-ray at this price by now,
the standard dvd was less than £8 only a month ago on Amazon and now its back up to this.

It was a very good scifi, not the best ever in my opinion. Given it was so good I could never understand why they canned it so early.

Babylon 5 is high on my list of best ever scifi series.

I loved this series paid 12 quid for it a while back but still a bargain

Got arrested development too another amazing series

great show and can only recomend more than enough

Worth it just for Summer Glau.:p

£8 on 07/03/11

Fox deeming it to have insufficient ratings. Just the same way they pulled the plug on Family Guy before DVD sales prompted them to reconsider. The management sometimes gets it horribly wrong! I wish they'd continue TTSC as well!

Joss is a great writer, that's for sure.

Great show, action, humour, good plots and great characters. I can't recommend this enough.

Cheaper at Zavvi and The Hut Im afraid.

Good spot. Have some heat.

superb show, nuff said

Great price for a brilliant show. Make sure you pick up serentity (the movie) to go with it!

Anything starring Jewel Staite is a guaranteed hit with me Shame this and Atlantis both got cancelled though.

fantastic show, fingers crossed for a new series sometime.
